The NIST Cybersecurity Framework outlines a thorough structure for data security technologies, processes, and controls. The framework provides an approach to managing data security and a roadmap for improving data security in the future by identifying core functions that organizations should address in their IT systems and processes. While the framework is not required by law, there are many benefits to the voluntary implementation of this framework.
- Attorneys: From this webinar, counsel will understand the technical components of the NIST framework and be able to stress the importance of applying it to complement organizations’ data security strategy in this ever-evolving technology world.
- Technologists: Technologists will find this review of the NIST framework from the legal perspective a valuable tool to complete their picture of cybersecurity risk management practices and planning.
In part one (1) of this seminar, our expert panelists introduce the high-risk cybersecurity concerns companies face and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
